NBA Twitter moves fast. One minute you're watching theGolden State Warriors claim their fourth NBA title in eight seasonsand the next you need shades to deflect all the Drake hate.

On Thursday, Drake released his seventh studio album, titled "Honestly, Nevermind." Typically, the Toronto-based rapper's album releases are cause for celebration on the internet. But on thisoccasion, the reception vibes were much more "Boston fans after the Celtics lost Game 6" than "Stephen Currycelebrating in the Warriors' locker room." See how we tied that back to the Finals?

Drake -- who is a fixture in the NBA community and has made a habit of name-dropping players in the Association -- hadBradley Beal,Donovan Mitchelland more questioning everything.

It feels wrong to slander the man who gave us the lyric "I been Steph Curry with the shot. Been cookin' with the sauce, chef, curry with the pot" on the night Curry won his first Finals MVP award, but alas the internet is a cold, cold place.
